The pub on the ground floor has undergone a magnificent refurbishment allowing it to continue to serve an impressive selection of craft beer and gin, with a focus on London-style products. Mingled amongst the new neon signs, metal rafters and industrial lighting is traditional wooden furniture and bespoke pieces upholstered in teal and mustard yellow colours.
All flooring on the ground floor was removed and replaced with heavy duty carpet or solid wood purposely chosen to withstand a high volume of foot traffic.
The existing ladies and gents’ toilets have been refurbished, existing tiles and sanitaryware was retained and refreshed and new tiles and decorations spruce up the place.
The handsome, new hostel accommodation above the pub has 3 dormitories with 12, 9 or 6 bunks. The bunks are triple tiered, encased with wood effect panelling for more privacy and each level is branded with a bunk number. Luggage storage and security lockers have been provided with token lounging furniture which creates a comfortable and cosy hangout space. The teal walls contrast beautifully with the yellow window sashes for a bright and playful effect which matches the pub below.
The shared shower room and toilets are newly created. Efficient use of the compact space has allowed for 2 or more showers to each of the bathrooms. The pick of the rooms is the standalone double room with its own private bathroom, clothes hanging space and views of the city.
Hidden behind the pub is a spacious terrace with highwalls decorated with colourful paintings of plants blocking much of traffic noise. Several canteen-style benches and new fixed benches across the back can accommodate an ample amount of pub and hotel guests.
Located right in the centre of the city, Rose & Crown is just walking distance from lots of major London attractions - Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, London Tower and Borough Market making it a very popular destination for many global travellers visiting the UK. This is a pub and hostel for all seasons and inside, you’ll find a friendly, cosy atmosphere, traditional style with plenty of history.
